2018 National Conference on Childhood Apraxia of Speech
July 12-14, 2018
Sheraton Charlotte Hotel
Charlotte, North Carolina
The Childhood Apraxia of Speech Association of North America will be offering a limited number of scholarships to aid families with financial need who may not otherwise be able to attend the Conference. Single Star Scholarship awards will be a partial waiver of Conference Registration Fees. Double Star Scholarship awards will be a full waiver of Conference Registration Fees. Triple Star Scholarships will reimburse approved expenses up to $500. We regret that we will be unable to assist all of those who apply for conference scholarships, however CASANA will use the resources of the Scholarship Fund to assist as many applicants as possible. CASANA’s Scholarship Committee will decide which type of scholarship to award applicants and its decisions are final.
ELIGIBILITY: Parents or Guardians of a child diagnosed with Childhood Apraxia of Speech are eligible for a scholarship. Priority will be given to applicants attending their first National Conference who demonstrate financial need. Special consideration will also be given to those applicants who are actively involved in CASANA activities. Only one scholarship per family will be awarded. Past scholarship recipients are not eligible. Scholarships are not transferable.
